    Older adults who practice senior balance exercises every day gain a sense of confidence with their movement activities. Please see To enjoy an independent and high quality of life, aging individuals need to be active in family and community events, which add a sense of socialization, community and personal value. Far too often, those in the aging population become isolated, inactive and depressed. Part of this downward spiral leads to immobility, weakness, imbalance and a greater risk for falling. Falls for senior citizens often lead to injuries, greater loss of independence and lower confidence with further movement activities. Recently, medical researchers have studied what interventions help enhance an older individuals stability and mobility. Their conclusion have found that older individuals improve their steadiness and function as well as boost their confidence in their balance abilities by participating in interventions that include balance training with specific senior balance exercises and strengthening exercises.

Begin Strengthening  And Senior Balance Exercises

  To build confidence with movement activities and l to maximize overall balance abilities, medical professionals recommend performing senior balance exercises and certain leg strengthening exercises as part of a daily fitness regime.  Medical researchers have published studies that mention that since the ability to maintain balance has been found as a strong determinant of balance confidence the focus on balance seems logical. Exercise including strengthening exercises in addition to functional balance training or task specific exercises (e.g. sit to stand, marching or walking through an obstacle course) are beneficial to build the necessary balance skills to accomplish daily living tasks. In their research, the authors also found that consistent repetition of equilibrium routines is a key ingredient for positive changes in balance abilities. Thankfully, there is now available a convenient treatment tool that can be used in the home to allow the older person to exercise on a daily basis without having to travel to a Physical Therapy clinic or local gym for instruction. The Exercise For Balance DVD was developed by a knowledgeable Physical Therapist and can be used at home to practice certain leg strengthening exercises as well as specific senior balance exercises.
